“She didn’t mean it that way,” says Hilton, adding, “I’m so proud of her for speaking up and using her voice.”
Paris Hilton has now broken her silence on the record about Britney Spears citing her during her fiery conservatorship hearing in June.
According to her vivid statement in court, Spears claimed she “didn’t believe” Paris’ says that she was mistreated at boarding school, drawing a similarity between that and her doubts nobody would trust her while speaking out about her conservatorship.
“A lot of people want to ask me about that, it’s all over social media and I know that she didn’t mean it that way,” Hilton said when addressing Britney’s comments on the latest episode of her This Is Paris podcast.
“She meant when she saw it, she couldn’t even believe it. What she said was, when people hear that, they go, ‘Oh, it’s Britney Spears, it’s Paris Hilton, they have these perfect lives,'” Hilton added, saying she believed Spears meant, “I didn’t even believe Paris, so who is going to believe me.”
She shared the short video on the Twitter page, she said, “I will always support and love Britney. She is so kind and sweet, and she deserves her freedom. I’ve been saying #FreeBritney for a long time, and I will keep saying it until she is free. We all need to use our voices to protect victims of abuse.”
In one more footage, Hilton claimed it was “so hard to hear her whole testimony” — saying she “knew [Britney] was being controlled but not in ways like that.” She added that the situation “broke my heart” and that while she faced abuse as a teenager, she couldn’t imagine still going through something like that now.
“She’s a legend, she’s an icon, she’s a mother, she’s amazing, and she has these people controlling her money, her life,” said Paris.
While providing evidence thru her conservatorship reach in June, Britney, 39, said she didn’t at first trust Paris’ abuse claims, admitting that she was anxious people wouldn’t accept as true her own said also and consequently didn’t openly address them rather.
“To be honest with you, the Paris Hilton story on what they did to her at that school, I didn’t believe any of it,” she told the court. “I’m sorry … I’m an outsider and I’ll just be honest, I didn’t believe it, and maybe I’m wrong and that’s why I didn’t want to say any of this to anybody to the public because I thought people would make fun of me or laugh at me and say, ‘She’s lying, she’s got everything, she’s Britney Spears.’ I’m not lying. I just want my life back.”
Soon after her court presence, Paris did a DJ set at the grand opening of the new Las Vegas hotel, Resorts World. As per fan videos and tweets, many of which Paris “liked” on Twitter, Paris gave Britney a call during her set, saying, “We love you, Britney. Free Britney” before playing Britney’s hit, “Piece of Me.”
In September 2020, Paris broke the silence in the sustenance of Britney among the “Baby One More Time” singer’s enduring conservatorship, toofab stated.
“I saw her this summer,” she told Andy Cohen on his Sirius XM show, “Andy Cohen Live” at the time. “We’ve had dinners, I saw her in Malibu. I just love her so much. I feel like if you are an adult, you should be able to live your life and not be controlled. I think that maybe stems from me being controlled so much, so I can understand how that would feel and I can’t imagine right now if that was still happening to me.”
“After just working your whole life and working so hard, she’s this icon and I just feel like she has no control of her life whatsoever and I just don’t think that’s fair,” Paris added.
